Plowing Through the Tulips

There’s a photo of my daughter floating around our family albums (she’s an only child, so there are a few albums out there). She’s running through a garden of tulips, holding hands with her best friend. Apparently, little girls know nothing of tiptoeing through tulips. The only thing they knew how to do was frolic at a very quick pace.

The two girls wore dresses that almost looked as if they were intentionally coordinated with the actual blooms themselves, a formal flower garden photo shoot—her friend in light pink and coral blooms, my daughter in cheery yellows and crisp whites. Their ensembles were unplanned, of course, because what little girl actually wears what her mom wants her to wear from the get-go?

Donned in these gorgeous bright outfits, they created this image of almost being one (or two, as it were) with the flowers themselves. I’ll never forget the scene (although I couldn’t tell you what album the photo is in). The Anais & I jersey girls dress reminds me so much of it. The skirt is so full of beauty and life, it belongs running through an enchanting field of flowers. It’s a perfect reminder of spring and summer during the colder months, when the blossoms are taking their seasonal siesta. During this time, we hold onto nature’s pretty packages of petals through sweet touches—the skirt’s splashes of fun color and floral print, the little rosette corsage, the petal-softness of the jersey top.

I would love to recapture that photo when she and her best friend are older. Maybe then we wouldn’t get yelled at by the groundskeeper to stop stomping through the tulips.
